Wrapping Up Autumn

It's been an unusually warm week for the end of October, but the rain clouds have moved in as Hurricane Sandy moves up the Eastern Seaboard. The high winds and rain will just about do in the last of the fall colours, which have been splendid this year.

I've had a busy week but managed some writing in the evenings. Sometimes it's harder than others to get started, but I'm always happy to get back into the story for an hour or two. The trip to Kingston was a great help in grounding me to the setting and logistics. I lived in Kingston for a year many moons ago when I was in teachers' college at Queen's. It's a beautiful little city right on Lake Ontario with old limestone buildings and history dating back to Sir John A. MacDonald. We even happened upon a house where he lived for a time.

Today, I'm off to Brittons at 846 Bank Steet (at Fifth) in the Glebe to sign copies of Second Chances and In Winter's Grip from one to three p.m. I'm looking forward to meeting up with Linda Wiken who is looking after 'Prime Crime Bookshelf' in Brittons, offering a wide selection of mystery and crime novels. They are also inviting local authors to sign on Saturdays, so it's a great place to drop in on every weekend. It would be great to see you today if you're in the neighbourhood :-) It feels like the week ahead will be a good one for lighting a fire, making some tea and curling up with a good book.
